^ Co-sign lol. That is the funniest gif I've seen in a while.

Got my Varsity Red VI's for $110 shipped which is about all they're worth. It's insane how a poorly constructed retro can resell for so much, but if people have it to drop, that's on them.

Prices will only get worse as long as there is Hype behind them. Im not paying retail for a worn shoe! Just not my swag
post #34 of 62
We are in the era of rental beasts, dudes by and wear the shoe multiple times then sell for over retail.... Dudes paying way over retail for worn shoes smh, I'm just annoyed that people don't understand what NDS, VNDS mean. Or the infamous "these are DS only worn once"

Good looks fam.

I laugh at the price of those 2010 Flints too since I was able to cop a pair of 05's for under 250 shipped.  Another one knocked off the list.  Can't wait for the Breds to drop so that people will start getting rid of their 2004's.

If you're patient enough, you can get shoes at a reasonable price.  I have yet to drop some of the prices that people are willing to drop on shoes, but sneakers aren't my only hobby/expense.  I know what I am willing to/not willing to spend.  The upside is that I don't have to have fire sales of my entire collection like some due to living above my means.  Also, if I want a pair bad enough, I'll negotiate a price with the seller that's more than fair and do the deal through Paypal which helps them out.  If you catch auctions early and get a good offer in, it helps you to avoid the urge to compete with a bunch of people in the final seconds.

Worn shoes is another thing all together...I've sold a pair of SBs that were worn, but I listed them and described them as such despite the fact that I could've passed them off like some of these shady sellers do, "only tried on and worn around the house for an hour."  They just had too much going on for my current style so I no longer wanted them.  I wouldn't personally purchase worn shoes though as there are people who take care of their shoes the way that I do and have shoes that can pass for DS after several wears.

There's a couple good deals to be had here on the list too, way too many overpriced shoes on Ebay.

A lot of this money is virtual – dudes buying shoes nowadays prob sellin shoes also so what usually happens is that someone will sell 2 used pairs of Js and buy 1 DS pair with the paypal balance. Its a lot different to when guys used to pay over hard cash in hand than selling virtually.

I wouldn’t say Js are the worst, yeezys are just stupid right now guys asking for $1.5k for beat up used sheakers!

The prices are insane......But I have seen a growing trend like on CL people who were once selling stuff at astronomical prices have decided to come down, largely because nobody wants to pay that much. I don't get on eBay much any more, because there's less room for bargaining.  Buying a pair of '06 Metallic V's for $50 with minor yellowing of soles( not piss yellow) later this evening. Ran across another pair of Tour IV's for $100......So there are reasonable people and stuff out there, but for every 1, theres a dozen vultures who take advantage. Easiest thing to do, is simply not pay price you're not comfortable with.

My main issue is the Space Jams. There was a dude on eBay that had $550 BIN. I asked him if he takes offers. He asked what's my offer, and I said $330. He then said that he wants no less than $450... grin.gif30t6p3b.gif

eBay has a 13% premium which you have to account for. Anything you'd see here is automatically 15% higher just because of the fees. Add to that the fact that the eBay consumer for Jordans and shoes in general is a chump, and you can see why sellers set artificially high prices knowing they can make higher profits than thru sites like here. I won't buy anything off eBay, and while I'm sure there are still a few steals out there, there's also a lot of shady dirtbags on eBay and you have to do a lot of searching and spend a lot of time monitoring stuff to find what you need. I'd much rather deal with NT or another site to credentialize sellers and make much more fair trades and purchases.

I agree and disagree with this statement. I actually think eBay is the SAFEST way to purchase, the reason being that eBay/PayPal ALWAYS protects the buyer. If you get scammed on eBay, you WILL get refunded without a doubt. There are shady dudes on here and ISS who have scammed people with "gift payment options" and "I won't ship until you ship first." But I definitely agree with you; eBay is robbery for charging 13%. That's just ridiculous. I used to use eBay until they started to be stupid with all their charges.

Nowadays you see most people using their auctions to advertise their product for this reason.  Then they'll try and work a deal out with you to avoid the eBay fee and just deal with the Paypal fee.  Since Paypal offers buyer protection too now if I recall correctly (not just eBay only anymore), it's not a bad strategy.

Absolutely; couldn't agree more. Some naive buyers don't trust doing it outside of eBay but if you can get them to understand paypal offers protection it is a great idea.
